After I spent my evening going through "50 Simple Things You Can Do To Save Earth." front to back and back to front again and marveling at the plain and powerful facts expressed in the book, NUMBER ONE on my list of things you can do if you care about this planet and want to help preserve it for future generations is to buy the Javna family's illuminating book. Not only does the book offer clear and simple solutions to what seem like unsolvable problems, the authors have teamed up with 50 of America's top environmental groups who are already working to turn the tide against the terrible losses our planet is enduring. This thoughtful and well organized book will help you quickly identify specific ways you can make a difference as an individual and connect you with a community of experts, caring and hard working people already fighting to change our culture and save the planet. "50 Simple Things" is a blueprint for the grassroots movement necessary if we are to protect our environment and the creatures in it. Congratulations to the Javnas on delivering a thoughtful, honest and challenging primer on our responsibilities to this planet, and ultimately to ourselves.

Format: Paperback
John Javna completely revised this book from it's original 17 years ago and this time his 17 year old son, Jesse, and 14 year old daughter, Sophie, help.

Javna writes that he had become disillusioned with the environmental cause, as just applying tips wouldn't save the planet. It was his kids who motivated him to think--and act--once again.

Javna believes that we must do more than green our lives to save the planet. 5o Simple Things You can do to Save the Earth, is an "interactive partnership between individual readers, environmental organizations and us."

Not a list of things to do, but 50 separate environmental issues. The point is for the reader to pick one environmental issue that resonates and commit to helping that cause. To make the cause part of one's life.

What a great idea! This book provides 50 terrific causes to get involved with. A website and resources in the book directly link you to the organizations to make it easy to get involved and help.

If you care about your kids and the future of the planet, read this book and get involved in a cause!

By the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet.

Format: Paperback
This is a great follow-up to the classic book that alerted us all to the dangers facing the environment. It is at once a renewed call for action, a how-to for making change, and a guide for building community resources. It offers tons of creative suggestions for uniting with other to save our planet and also provides a wealth of information about what's affecting the environment and why we should care. A great book all around!

I have used the older version of the "50 Simple Things Kids Can do to Save the Earth" every year in my classroom for the last seven years. I am so excited for an updated adult version. For my students, I read one "tip" of the kid's version almost every day. They LOVE it! During our electricity unit, I read all of the appropriate tips for that. When I teach the water cycle, I share all of the tips about water use. I am thrilled that they have updated this book so that the data is current. (The factoids they share make the learning so accessible.) I am working with other teachers this summer on the subject of sustainability and will encourage them each to get the adult version for themselves and the kid's version for their class.
